Policy for Packaging Financial Assistance

Bradley University attempts to meet the demonstrated financial need of all qualified applicants in an equitable manner. It is the University's policy to maintain consistency in award packaging through the completion of the student's program of study. However, changes in federal, state, and institutional assistance may occur due to changes in family circumstances (reported via the FAFSA) or reduction of funding sources.

The amount of total need met and the composition of the total aid award (gift aid versus student loans and employment) is established at the point of initial enrollment by assigning applicants to a packaging model. All applicants meeting the criteria specified by the model receive similar award packages. The criteria used for the packaging assignment include class rank, grade point average, standardized test score results, level of financial need, and geographic origins.
